Over the autumn period we’ve been quietly beavering away on some projects which you can now find on our portfolio pages; A gorgeous autumnal personal homestead for Brandon and Thalia Taselian, the new Cold Ash store sim and ofcourse the Ultra Event building environment. All of which you can also find some amazing photos of in our Flickr group.
A little over two months ago we opened the doors on Cloudbreak, our vision of the perfect, remote Indonesian watersports venue and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the amazing way it has been received, and also to thank the owner Vally for giving us the opportunity to flex our pixel muscles on such a huge project.
Throughout history Western society has produced counter-cultural shifts that have redefined society as we know it today. The Flapper Movement of the 1920s, the Anti-Establishment era in the 50’s and 60’s and the Anti-Culture of the 90’s. Does this mean we’re due another? What might it look like today?
Whether you’re new to digital sports or not, you will have noticed a massive amount of red tape issued by pseudo-organisations, old wives tales, political opinions and agendas which seem to dominate everywhere you turn. The “must do’s” and “definitely don’ts” that seem to vary from person to person.
First of all, thankyou so much to literally every person who contributed a photo. This was one of the hardest things we’ve had to do and have been completely blown away by both the response and all the images people have taken time to enter. We know how much work goes into photo creation and we try to make that a little easier by putting just as much effort into our environments, for you.
We love, admire and respect all of the creativity and talent that we are so lucky to have within such an amazing group of people. Never stop doing what you do. You make everyones lives richer.

What do you do when someone who has owned the same region for over a decade, asks for the dream environment they’ve been searching for, for all those years? Get intimidated? Laugh nervously? I think we did both of those things at first. I think all of us knew the next few months would be pretty intense, but perhaps not quite to the extent that it has been.
At [d.p], it’s fair to say we love what we do and we do what we love. We’re very appreciative and feel fortunate that alot of you enjoy things with us as we grow and develop together.
This week we managed to take some time out with our friends at SurfWatch and talk a while about how we got here and what’s in store for [d.p]. You can see the full interview on the SurfWatch Blog, including the short teaser below.
On 24th April, we officially opened the Ash Falls extension and we are so happy that you’ve been enjoying the new space!
Ash Falls has been home of dirty.pretty for a very long time; it’s been through various metamorphoses and taken lots of forms. In June ’17, Ash Falls was opened to the public and swiftly added to the photogenic location category in the Second Life Destination Guide. But whilst beautiful, we felt that Ash Falls hadn’t quite found its’ purpose in its’ newest form.
